TEQUILA AVOCADO MARGARITA RECIPE
Almost every day, I find a way to incorporate the smooth, rich fruit of the avocado into a meal or snack.
Most of the time I manage with just salt and a spoon, but this easy Tequila Avocado Margarita recipe is A-MAAAAZING!
It’s the perfect Happy Hour treat for Cinco de Mayo (or any other day of the year when you can find a ripe avocado)!
A thick, velvety texture carries the tequila, while cilantro and celery salt balance the sweetness.
If you don’t have ripe avocados nearby but still want a green margarita, try Blender Babes’ Signature Green Margarita (with spinach – sounds weird but it’s AMAZING, trust me!) or just stick with a classic margarita.

AVOCADO HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS

Rich in healthy fats and vitamin E, avocados also promote skin health and can offset symptoms of psoriasis and slow signs of aging.
